Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird fly Blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night.
 
Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.




 
Every Now and Then
Written by Kevin Parent
Vocals: Leah West
All other instrumentation by Marty Rifkin
Piano: Bob Malone

I’ve seen the world outside
Like wolves at the door
The raging sea rising higher than before
But this stillness I have inside is presently mine

Yes every now and then I feel the weight is lifting off of me
Yes every now and then it seems that we can still be free

At peace with myself like seldom before
I won’t feel guilty for not fighting this war
See those people cry, will come our turn
The planet’s in grief
We’ve got so much to learn
There’s more to the screen than meets the eye
People like you and me are allowed to know why

So every now and then I do get affected by what’s going on
Yes I hear the roaring anger, don’t get me wrong
Yes every now and then I want to reach out
and take the world in my hands
Cause every now and then believe it or not
I think I understand

I believe love is a must, domination is a lack of lust
And how many times do you breathe in deep?
How many smiles do you honestly mean?
Is there a silent something that deprives you from sleep?
Why not count instead of killing those imaginary sheep?
I pray for your relief

Every now then I feel the weight is lifting off of me
And every now and then it seems we can still be free
And every now and then I need to see that
look in my loved ones’ eyes
Cause every now and then I wake up
But the dream, it never dies

VERSE
A thousand times I’ve seen you standing
Gravity like a lunar landing
Make me want to run until I find you
I shut the world away from here
Drift to you, you’re all I hear
Everything we know fades to black

PRE-CHORUS
Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending
 
CHORUS
I never thought that I had anymore to give
Pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same
 
VERSE
Find the place where we escape
Take you with me for a space
The city buzz, it sounds just like a fridge
I walk the streets through seven bars
I had to find just where you are
The faces seems to blur, they’re all the same

PRE-CHORUS
Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending

CHORUS
I never thought that I had anymore to give
Pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
But love remains the same
 
BRIDGE
So much more to say
So much to be done
Don’t you trick me out
We shall overcome
And our love stays ablaze

We should have had the sun
Could have been inside
Instead we’re over here

PRE-CHORUS
Half the time the world is ending
Truth is I am done pretending
Too much time, too long defending
You and I are done pretending

CHORUS
I never thought that I had anymore to give
Pushing me so far
Here I am without you
Drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes we have made
Everything will change
Everything will change
Oh I, I wish that this could last forever
I, oh I, I wish that this could last forever
Ohhhhh
Ohhhhh
So drink to all that we have lost
Mistakes that we have made
But love remains the same



 
 
Make You Feel My Love
Written by Bob Dylan
Vocals: Leah West
Piano: Brigitte
All other instrumentation: Marty Rifkin
Recorded in Music City Studios and Rifkin Productions
Mixed by Marty Rifkin

When the rain is blowing in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you haven’t made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I’ve known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong

I’d go hungry, I’d go black and blue
I’d go crawling down the avenue
There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rollin’ sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change are blowing wild and free
You ain’t seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn’t do
Go to the ends of the earth for you
To make you feel my love

VERSE
She says "wake up, it's no use pretending"
I'll keep stealing, breathing her.
Birds are leaving over autumn's ending
 
CHORUS
One of us will die inside these arms
Eyes wide open, naked as we came
One will spread our ashes 'round the yard
 
VERSE
She says "If I leave before you, darling
Don't you waste me in the ground"
I lay smiling like our sleeping children
 
CHORUS
One of us will die inside these arms
Eyes wide open, naked as we came
One will spread our ashes round the yard
 
 
Say Something

Mixed by Marty Rifkin


Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'll be the one, if you want me to
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you

And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall
I'm still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

Say something, I'm giving up on you
I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
Anywhere I would've followed you
Say something, I'm giving up on you

And I will swallow my pride
You're the one that I love
And I'm saying goodbye

Say something, I'm giving up on you
And I'm sorry that I couldn't get to you
And anywhere I would've followed you (Oh-oh-oh-oh)
Say something, I'm giving up on you

Say something, I'm giving up on you
Say something...
 
Someone to Watch Over Me
Music by George Gershwin with lyrics by Ira Gershwin
Vocals: Leah West
Piano: Neville Bowman
Recorded at Music City Studios
Mixed by Marty Rifkin
 
There's a saying old, says that love is blind
Still we're often told, "seek and you shall find"
So I'm going to seek a certain lad I've had in mind

Looking everywhere, haven't found him yet
He's the big affair I cannot forget
Only man I ever think of with regret

I'd like to add his initial to my monogram
Tell me, where is the shepherd for this lost lamb?

There's a somebody I'm longing to see
I hope that he, turns out to be
Someone who'll watch over me

I'm a little lamb who's lost in the wood
I know I could, always be good
To one who'll watch over me

Although he may not be the man some
Girls think of as handsome
To my heart he’ll carry the key

Won't you tell him please to put on some speed
Follow my lead, oh, how I need
Someone to watch over me
Someone to watch over me

VERSE
I know they've hurt you bad.
Wide, the scars you have.
Baby let me straighten out your broken bones,
All your faults to me make you more beautiful.

CHORUS
I can't help it,
I love the broken ones,
The ones who,
Need the most patching up.
The ones who,
Never been loved,
Never been loved,
Never been loved enough.

Maybe I see a part of me in them.
The missing piece always trying to fit in.
The shattered heart,
Hungry for a home.
No you're not alone,
I love the broken ones.

VERSE
You don't have to drive,
With your headlights off.
It's a pocketknife,
Not a gift from God.
Don't you learn of love from the love they kept.
I will be your anchor slowly,
Step by step.
 
CHORUS
I can't help it,
I love the broken ones,
The ones who,
Need the most patching up.
The ones who,
Never been loved,
Never been loved,
Never been loved enough.

Maybe I see a part of me in them.
The missing piece always trying to fit in.
The shattered heart,
Hungry for a home.
No you're not alone,
I love the broken ones.
I love the broken ones.

BRIDGE
Maybe we can rip off the bandage.
Maybe you will see it for what it is.
Maybe we can burn this building,
Holding you in.

CHORUS
I can't help it,
I love the broken ones,
The ones who,
Need the most patching up.
The ones who,
Never been loved,
Never been loved,
Never been loved enough.

Maybe I see a part of me in them.
The missing piece always trying to fit in.
The shattered heart,
Hungry for a home.
No you're not alone,
I love the broken ones.
I love the broken ones.
I love the broken ones.
I love the broken ones.

 
 
The Weakness in Me
Written byJoan Armatrading
Vocals: Leah West
Background Vocals: Brigitte
Drums: Scott Evans
All other instrumentation: Marty Rifkin

 
VERSE
I’m not the sort of person who falls in and quickly out of love
But to you I gave my affection right from the start

I have a lover who loves me
How could I break such a heart?
Yet still you get my attention

CHORUS
Why do you come here when you know I’ve got troubles enough?
Why do you call me when you know I can’t answer the phone?
You make me lie when I don’t want to
You make someone else some kind of an unknowing fool
You make me stay when I should not
Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me?

VERSE
Feeling guilty, worried
Waking from a tormented sleep
This old love has me bound
But the new love cuts me deep

If I choose now
I’ll lose out
‘Cause one of you has to fall
I need you, I need you, I need you

CHORUS
Why do you come here when you know I’ve got troubles enough?
Why do you call me when you know I can’t answer the phone?
You make me lie when I don’t want to
You make someone else some kind of an unknowing fool
You make me stay when I should not
Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me?

Why do you come here and pretend to be just passing by?
When I need see you and I need to hold you tightly
